While the 1960s was all about sharp tailoring and structure, it was the seventies that saw a boost in creative draping and full fabrics from designers like Halston and the disco era looks. That was a trend that carried well into the 1980s, with looks much like this Slash Neck Dress from ASOS proving ever popular.
The use of stretch knitted fabric allows for seventies style draping in the batwing top to be perfectly counterbalanced by the sexier eighties sensibilities of the tight skirt and sleeves. The result is a dress that's vampish and glamorous, without being garish or clichéd. The colour options finish off the eighties feel, in dark coral pink and power blue.
